We are two weeks into rehearsals for this wonderful piece, being ably guided through the dots by Graham, who will conduct our summer concert on June 15th. The images in this video show Bax's inspiration: "The castle-crowned cliff of Tintagel, and more particularly the wide distances of the Atlantic as seen from the cliffs of Cornwall on a sunny but not windless summer day"
Don't miss hearing final year Royal Birmingham Conservatoire student, Henry Wright, performing Mozart's 4th Horn Concerto with us THIS SATURDAY, 9th March, at 2:30pm in Pershore Abbey.
Henry has performed regularly with several UK orchestras and ensembles, including the Birmingham Philharmonic Orchestra, Sinfonia of Birmingham and the Young Musicians Symphony Orchestra. He is a founder member of the highly successful Inventus Wind Quintet and will be commencing studies for a master’s degree at the Royal College of Music in September 2019.
The programme also includes Verdi's Force of Destiny Overture, Smetana's Vltava and Dvorak Symphony 7.
Some photos and comments from Saturday's Armistice Centenary Concert: "It's one of the concerts that will live with me for ever. So moving and such great music." "Delighted with it all the way from 'Memories of a Soldier' to 'Jerusalem' - like four concerts in one" "Such a magical formula and so well put together" "The Worcester Philharmonic Orchestra were magnificent, the music sensitive and well chosen and the last piece 'Soldiers of the Great War' a revelation to many"
Thank you everybody who made this such a special afternoon. ... See MoreSee Less
